Tonight is Mums retirement party, marking the end of 20 years in the Ambulance service. I tend to get a bit sentimental at times and I think today is one of those times!
I look back and remember when Mum did her training, the parties, the stories, the jokes.. not all of them clean!, the dispute in the 1980's, the Air Ambulance crash, how the guys from the station helped us all when Dad was ill in hospital, good times and bad.
I cant help but think about how she should be enjoying her retirement with Dad by her side,but it wasn't meant to be xx I will miss him tonight and no doubt Mum will too, but now's not the time to show it so I hope I can be strong and help celebrate and remember the good not the bad.
Apparently I am in charge of the drinking money for everyone... as I don't drink and no doubt by 830 I will be the only responsible (sober) adult on the premises...LOL
well off to put on the glad rags :O)
This is what I have done as a gift.... didn't know what to get xx
